Footballers generally spend their young lives supporting a team while growing up, but few have been able to play for the team they support. Today, the Fan Park crew looks at which teams the Amakhosi players supported during their youth…
Here’s a list of the current Chiefs players and who they supported growing up…
George Lebese– Mamelodi Sundowns
Bernard Parker– Kaizer Chiefs
Ivan Bukhenya– Manchester United
Morgan Gould– Many teams
George Maluleka– Kaizer Chiefs
Siphiwe Tshabalala–Kaizer Chiefs
Eric Mathoho– Kaizer Chiefs
Willard Katsande– Real Madrid, Manchester United & Kaizer Chiefs
Itumeleng Khune– Kaizer Chiefs
Unsurprisingly, many of the current crop of players actually supported the Naturena outfit… Lebese, who was born and raised in Mamelodi, grew up supporting his home team as a youngster.
Khosi fans, were there any shocks on this list?
